The police report doesn't say that at all. And I was drinking it straight out of the bottle, thank you, along with the rest of the liquor cabinet.

I don't drink beer. OML broke me of that after about 15 cans. That's another bad experience.

Most of us who have sworn off tequila have stories that start off much the same way.

You guys are speaking my language... Being from teh bluegrass I am proud to be a bourbon drinker...I have had everything from the crappiest to the best. Evan Williams is nasty. If you want good stuff...here is a list i will compile for you guys from high end to middle of the range.. these are ones i have tried and liked...

1. Pappy Van Winkle 23 yr family reserve (very expensive but oh so smooth)
2. Jeffersons Reserve
3. Ridgemont Reserve
4. 4 Roses
5. Blantons Reserve
6. Bookers
7. Woodford Reserve (becoming the new makers mark here in KY.)
8. Knob Creek
9. Makers Mark


Those are teh ones i like... you may have a hard time getting a few of them outside of this state, but just give em a shot (pardon the pun) if you ever get the chance.

If you ever make it to Louisville, eat at a place called the Oak Room... They have every bourbon you can think of by theglass. It is awesome.

Walker, I'm impressed! Very nice selection. Everything you mentioned is available here in Cali at Bev-mo or Trader Joes. I started collecting Bourbons about 10 years ago. The Evan Williams single barrel has become my "everyday" bourbon, but the Woodford reserve runs a close second. Everything else is for special occasions or when we do tasting at parties (Bourbon 101). I just got a new one last night, it's the 18 year old Elijah Craig Single barrel. It's truly wonderful, lots of caramel and oak.

Perhaps you should try the EW single barrel again. Maybe the bottle you had was bad or stored poorly before you got it. Excessive heat of cold will alter the flavors drastically. I've been drinking EWSB for several years and it is pretty consistent. If you like the Woodford and the Blantons, I can't imagine not liking the Evan Williams. The flavors and the aftertaste are both pretty close in all three, I like the aroma of the Evan Williams better. The coconut, vanilla, and mint aroma is a very pleasing combination. I like most everything that comes out of Heaven Hill.

Question: How do you drink your bourbon? I drink mine neat from a good sized brandy snifter. Sometimes, in the summer, I'll mix it with a bit of branch water and put it on ice (usually Bookers).

Prefer mine from a low-ball glass or short tumbler. Snifter is great to concentrate the aroma, I just don't like the upper rim of the glass hitting the bridge of my nose.

Educate me, "branch water" ?

I drink mine in a whisky glass with a couple cubes of ice and a splash of water.

"Branch water" is just plain drinking water, as opposed to sparkling or soda water.

I drink mine neat in a short tumbler / lowball... I never water it down. Living near Bardstown is quite the advantage. I have been inside Makers Mark, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, and Four Roses Distilleries and most of my glasses were bought in their gift shops. It is an amazing trip if you ever get the chance. Also, the Kentucky Bourbon Festival is going on as we speak down there. I will post pictures if I can make it down that way
